Glenbow Ranch talk

On Sept 23, 2014, Peter Sherrington gave a talk at the Glenbow Ranch. There were about 20 attendees and he presented on the migration, changes in the population and how the eagles are migrating later than they did 20 years ago. Sue de Caen at the Glenbow Ranch set up the talk which was preceded by a nature walk to look for birds including raptors. Attached are some photos from the event.
